This store would be great to have in Wilmington!!  I've been hearing more and more about how much a difference it can make if a home has energy saving appliances. 
 Sustain Ability has recently opened in Laconia and is exactly what we have been needing for so long! It carries hundreds of energy saving appliances and environmentally safe products. What a great store!
